Dave Hill is puzzled:
If I object to the government allowing publicly-funded Catholic adoption agencies to discriminate against same-sex couples (which I would) should I not also object to my local authority allowing Orthodox Jews to have the municipal swimming pool to themselves during Sunday afternoons (which I don't)?
Reihan Salam ponders a news story about a shooting prompted by an argument over the late James Brown's height:
For the record, I think it's pretty clear that a man as soulful as James Brown must have been of below average height. Whereas a tall or even average-sized man would allow soulfulness to diffuse over his considerable mass, a tiny man necessarily concentrates soulfulness that can then be projected outwards in the form of song. It's simple science, really.
